    Default The Popular Page Transitioning Tweak, Barrel, Has Been Updated for iOS 7


    For those of you who have been around the jailbreak scene for quite some time, the name “Barrel” rings a bell. It’s a tweak that we and many others view as one of the must-have jailbreak tweaks as it offers the wow-factor of customization quite well. Barrel is the type of tweak that one can use to convince skeptical friends that jailbreaking is definitely worth the hassle and showcasing the tweak often leads to converting a friend into someone who jailbreaks. It’s definitely not the type of app that enhances the usability of your iOS device but it’s still a tweak that comes to mind when thinking jailbreak.

    The tweak has recently been updated to support iOS 7 thanks to the recent update of the Mobile Substrate (now called Cydia Substrate).

    For those of you who don’t know what it is, Barrel allows users to insert transitions between pages on the iPhone’s Home Screen. The transition happens whenever you swipe from page to page and the transitions can range from a subdued fade-in to the more radical snake transition. Barrel includes well over a dozen different transitions to choose from and if you can’t decide on which one you want, you can opt for the random select transition that will keep you guessing with every page swipe. One of the cool things about the tweak is that the transitions can be changed on the fly so there isn’t a need to constantly respring your iOS device.

    Aaron Ash, the creator of Barrel is currently offering the tweak for $2.99. Those of you who currently don’t own it definitely need to pick it up and those of you who already do, make sure you update!


    Name: Barrel
    Price: $2.99
    Version: 1.7.0.2
    Requirements: iOS 7.0+
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Aaron Ash
    Editor's Rating:  5/5

    Working well on mine. Slight graphical bug in some of the transitions on pages with folders on them (black appears behind the folder). Only thing off I've seen so far.

    Hey thanks! Love Iconoclasm.

    Doesn't seem to download. Get some error. Might be traffic though so will try again later.

    I just downloaded it and looks like it's working for the 64bits. One of my favorites after sbsettings.

    The only problem I've had with Barrel is that now my wife and daughter want me to JB their phones and Ipads so that they can be as cool as me.

    I hear you brother. My son just saw that and asked me to jailbreak his device. He wants to SMS bomb some friends and a I told him that the tweak is no longer available.

    I've been absent so long from jail breaking that I forgot everything. I forgot all my sources I used to use. All the overlooked awesome tweaks. I remember when jail breaking was so cool to do now it's mainstream

    Hipsters do NOT jailbreak their phones. It's way too mainstream lol.
    You know, if I was a hipster, I would have a blackberry....

    I would actually think that probably only 5-10% of iOS device owners jailbreak...

    I don't mean it in a hipster way haha. I mean like it used to be fun and sh!t to discover crap on cydia and installer and rockyourphone. Ehh maybe it's because I'm older now.
